teaching material: powers of ten
Here is an interesting article by Science in School. In three rather simple activities you can teach your students (10 years and up) about what we do as physicists in research.
Are you interested in mathematics, computer science, biology, chemistry, physics? Could you imagine studying at Hamburg university with one of those as your major?
If so, check out this website for prospective students of the MIN faculty! (Website in German)
Do a virtual tour of the observatory or listen to podcasts: check out the media page of the Hamburg observatory in Bergedorf.
Interviews on "Why astrophysics?"
Students and junior scientists at the observatory Hamburg answer questions like:
What is so interesting about astrophysics?
How did you come to study astrophysics?
Where are you from?
What is your research about?
What keeps you going?
What hurdles did you come across in your studies?
You can find the answers to these questions in this interview series on "Why astrophysics?".
day-to-day in mathematics
In the winter semester, we ask six professors from the Department of Mathematics what fascinates them about their field and why they find mathematics beautiful.
